We are taking the cover off today!

McLean, VA - October 29, 2018: eLumin is excited to announce three new product offerings designed to replace legacy, expensive, and complicated virtual desktop solutions. Over the last several months we have met with campus technology leaders across the country. With their feedback and a long history of industry experience, we have designed our new products with your students, faculty, and staff in mind. Built in the public cloud Open Access Labs, Classroom Virtual Desktops, and Virtual Applications provide a scalable, resilient, and economical way to ensure that technology does not get in the way of learning or productivity. Powered by Amazon Web Services, eLumin's cloud-native products provide peace of mind knowing they can scale during peak times on campus and you won't have students, faculty, or staff waiting to use critical technology resources.

Some of the highlights of each product are outlined below, but be sure to see our product pages for more detailed information.
